In this children's drama, a 10-year old boy becomes deeply troubled after his mother abandons him and he must go through a series of foster families. He finally finds one and finds himself befriended by a kindly grandmother with whom he really bonds. Unfortunately, she suddenly dies, and the boy is unable to cope. He begins causing trouble and winds up in a special school. Fortunately, he knows that he can return to the family when he is released.
